    I have a driver, got him to do long distance first then balancing out the training. He makes around £7000-£10000 a trip. I make between £18000 - £24000 (3 levels in long distance, 2 in fragile, 1 in just in time)

    I run it like this by level 10

    Long distance - get to at least level 3
    Fragile - atleast level 2
    High value - atleast level 2
    just in time - atleast level 2
    Eco - atleast level 1

    I miss ADR because it offers no value (that said, Eco doesn't save much until level 4 anyway, but worth that extra saving). By level 10 I am pulling in around £40k per drop.

    You say Eco dosnt help much... it has with my 700bhp Volvo... 120/100miles down to 70-80/100miles. Does help a little as ive lost my 700L tank.. (700+200L now)

    Mine is:
    ADR: (acid)
    Long distance 2
    Fragile - 2
    High value - 4
    just in time - 0
    Eco - 1

    You dont see real savings until level 4 onwards IMO. Rank 4 gives you 25% savings. By this point you should have an engine which gives you 8% or so as well, so brings to 1/3 fuel decrease. This is a god send. By level 6 it is at 35% + max engine efficiency (which I think is around 20%) so you can save a small fortune. I kit out all trucks with the fuel efficient engines as soon as possible.

    Give your drivers the eco engine. It results in more profits for you

    On a full tank with a trailer, I will get around 3300Km. On a full tank with no trailer, I'll get maybe 7000Km.

    My range counter claims 2000+ miles but I haven't been checking it. I am changing my gear change tactics though from thrash the hell out of it to a smooth change at ~15k RPM and the truck has been going faster!

    I also flipped it for the first time last night and ran a red at a bugged level crossing...
